Card Patterns #141

Happy Sunday Dear friends!!  I hope you've had a wonderful weekend full of family and creativity!!  We have a fabulous sketch for you this week at Card Patterns that features a new twist from the design team.  All of our cards are made with digital software.  I for one have never used digital software to make a card before, so it was a great week to stretch my creative side!!

Here's the sketch:

Prize: One lucky participant this week will win 1 free copy of the My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software ($40 value).

I chose to do a hybrid card with the software.  I just have to touch and feel my projects, so going completely digital isn't an option for me.  The software took quite some time to figure out, so I feel like I have a lot to learn regarding the whole digital genre.  I am excited to learn more about hybrid crafting and you will see more hybrid cards from me in the future!

Here's my take on the sketch:
First I printed the digital patterned paper and then I printed the banner and the dots onto the card base.  I felt that the spacing was fairly easy to figure out in the program. Next, I printed out several digital elements to fussy cut and glue to my card base.
After I fussy cut all the elements, I added glitter, buttons, jewels and twine to finish up the card.
It's a pretty simple card, but it was a great learning experience and I'm hoping to do better with digital goodies in the future!!

Supplies Used:
My Memories Software
My Memories All I want for Christmas Pack and Word Art
Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock Holly Jolly Die, and Button Twine
Kaiser Craft Rhinestones
Buttons from my stash

Have a great evening,
